I enjoy collecting antique radio's from the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's.
Mostly I prefer radios built into wooden chassis because they make nice
pieces of funiture and add a warm feeling to any room in the home.
Below are some pictures of my modest collection:
This is a PHILCO table-top model possibly from the 1940's.
This radio was purchased from a rummage sale for $10 in 1996.
It has been cleaned up considerably and retubed it. This PHILCO
covers the standard AM BAND only.
Here is another PHILCO model 42-PT94. This radio isn't as nice
looking as the previous because I didn't spend a whole lot of time
refinishing it. I purchased this radio for $20 from a small
antique dealer in my home town. This radio plays nicely and only cover
the standard AM BAND.
This RCA model T9-10 is dated 1935. I just purchased this
from a antique mall for $65. This RCA covers the standard
AM BAND as well as all the international SW (shortwave) BANDS.
Previously, this radio had been modified electrically, and did not
work. With a few hours of work, this radio now plays on an table
in the corner of my living room. This radio is a beautiful piece
